Can somebody help me buying Xbox?

Hello,

I have never been a big console gamer and have always done gaming on my PC. This is the first time I would be buying a console. I need your help to buy a Xbox console. I have a few questions:

- Should i get a modded console? I know that by getting a modded console i can play pirated games. But can i:

- play Xbox live games or play multiplayer games

- update to latest 2011 dashboard update without getting the console bricked?

- What things should i keep in mind while buying a used Xbox?

Please share your suggestions as I don't want to buy a dud. Thanks. :P

Also a lot of people are selling their Xbox at Olx etc at varying prices. There is no standard price. I don't know why there is so much variation in these prices. Any help would be really appreciated.

Microsoft can identify your entire system. not just the disc loading they will always be able to update their detecting software since xboxlive is very very dedicated when it comes to online console gaming so yes if you're online player then no modded

you can update it but not on an modded console, or you will risk it being bricked, you can update it for a fee
